Bug Description

Dear All

Your documentation to the topic "Log in with a fingerprint" is not applicable to Ubuntu 20.04. There is no "...next to (Fingerprint Login)...".

I would be grateful if the documentation were adapted to Ubuntu 20.04.

Thank you for your help. Kind regards, Laszlo

It would be very helpful to point out which fingerprint readers are supported. It would also be an advantage if the relevant online resources were referred to in the event of problems.

See attachment too.

Thank you for your help, Kind regards, Laszlo

Hi, I would like to know how to enable login with fingerprint in Lubuntu LXQT 0.14.1
Thank you

Documentation is correct, the problem is that no "row" is shown in case there are no recognized devices.

Thanks for your comment, Marco. Not sure about your conclusion, though.

* Should g-c-c add a greyed out row when no devices are present?


* Should the docs be clarified, so the case with no devices is covered?

I think this would be easier for now.

We can't easier expose to GCC whether an unsupported device is available for now, so changing it could be not trivial.
